Arsene Wenger sets date for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to return from injury

Arsene Wenger sets date for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to return from injury

Arsenal avoided being on the receiving end of another European comeback as they booked a passage into the Europa League semi-finals at CSKA Moscow's expense.

Asked who he fancies in today's semi-final draw, Wenger replied: "Everybody speaks about Atletico Madrid, they look strongest on paper from now on, but you must recognise as well the result that Salzburg has achieved".

Late goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey helped Arsenal clinch a 2-2 draw and a comfortable aggregate win.

Atletico Madrid are also through, and remain the favourites to win the trophy in Lyon next month - they were beaten 1-0 on the night away to Sporting Lisbon but progressed 2-1 on aggregate.

Fedor Chalov scored his side's only goal in that game, coming off the bench, and was rewarded with his first Europa League start of the year alongside the man he replaced, Leicester loanee Ahmed Mousa, in the absence of the injured Pontus Wernbloom.

All's well that ends well as they say, but far from convincing.

The first legs of the semi-finals will be played in just less than 2 weeks' time on the 26th of April, while the second will be played a week later May 3rd.

Marseille are unbeaten at home in this season's Europa League and will have the backing a fanatical crowd when they host Salzburg in the first leg.

The visitors scored a second when Jean-Kevin Augustin's superb free kick turned the tie in Leipzig's favour again in the 55th minute but Payet's magical goal with the outside of his right foot on the hour sent the home fans wild.

"We were in trouble in the first half but once we moved to a back five we were much more stable and didn't concede many chances". "We always believed in it, and that makes a lot of difference".

They were punished for slack defending in each half through Chalov and Nababkin, though, as Viktor Goncharenko's side showed signs they would punish the Gunners' complacency and snatch a spot in the last four.

From good play from the Russian outfit, Nacho Monreal was over-powered in the air by full-back Nababkin who got above him to head an effort on target into the bottom corner which forced Petr Cech into an excellent save.

On the other side of the draw to Arsenal and Atletico, Marseille will have their sights set on a final outing on French soil. "We were a bit on the ropes, but we had a good response", Wenger told BT Sport after Arsenal secured a first European semi-final appearance since 2009.
